Virgin Australia takes love sky high for Valentine's Day

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Virgin Australia operated the first service in the history of the airline comprised entirely of crew who have met their soulmate on the job.

The loved-up couples, including pilots and cabin crew, were joined by specially appointed celebrity CFO (Chief Flower Officer) and The Bachelor alumni, Brittany Hockley alongside postponed honeymooners, who gave guests the most romantic flight they’ve ever taken.

The loved-up flight, VA519 from Sydney to the Gold Coast, included three couples on a mission to re-do their honeymoons, after they were originally cancelled due to circumstances related to COVID-19. Each couple enjoyed an overnight stay at the stunning JW Marriott Gold Coast, complete with bubbles, handmade chocolates, complimentary breakfast and breathtaking ocean views.

Onboard VA519, CFO, Hockley, was finally on the other side - handing out roses instead of receiving them - and personally gave each guest a long-stemmed red rose to spread the love and inject some romance into the experience from the moment they boarded the aircraft.

In further celebration of the most romantic day of the year, Virgin Australia is dropped 1.5 million airfares to some of Queensland’s hottest destinations from less than 69 dollars. The sale fares are available at virginaustralia.com and include flights to the Gold Coast, Cairns, Hamilton Island, Sunshine Coast, and the Whitsundays. Famous for its pristine beaches and tropical islands, Queensland is the perfect destination for loved-up couples looking to finally make their missed or postponed honeymoons a reality.
